Tough Soles are creating videos about hiking every trail in Ireland

Carl and Ellie are walking every National Waymarked Trail in Ireland.

These trails total to a distance of around 4,000km (2,500 miles). No one has walked all these trails before, so we’ve been documenting the journey through videos and blog posts. We've walked more than 3,000km by now, and we hope you'll come along!

Becoming our patron means that you’ll be helping us walk and create. We try to share what we’re working on with our patrons before we share it with the rest of the world. We have a patron only blog where we share mini updates and early versions of future blog posts, and we also link our videos to you before we publish them on youtube (we can't promise we'll manage every time, life in a tent can be a little disorganised, but we do try really hard!). If you love the outdoors and discovering more about Irish heritage, adventuring ethics, and the strange things that happen when you live out of a backpack, then this is probably the place for you!

Also, we'll thank all of you at the end of a video, as well as specifically naming a couple of patrons per video, something along the lines of "Thank you to our all patrons, especially Ann and Ben for helping us do this. We managed to have showers because of you this month!"

Finally, you'll be a big part of this incredible, beautiful, silly journey.

Thank you!
Ellie & Carl

Goals
$382 of $600 per month
Indefinite Walking: €600 per month is our budget for Tough Soles - around €20 per day. If we reach this goal, we'd be able to keep going, walking and making videos, forever? That would be amazing. And of course we'd ask our Patrons what project they think we should do next...
